      Betting the river (block bet) i think it's the best option here. There are a lot of hands in his range that he would call with. 88-JJ , A-7, 78 so i think you should bet to extract value out of worse hands.

      Hello Alleen86,

      I'd still threw a small block-bet and can easily get Called from worse PPs/pairs. Check/Folding directly there is a bit too weak.

      Best regards.
